        The internet connection is good — I am on it now.  My AOL account set up fine.  But my Exchange account will not connect, nor my GMail account.

        The Exchange just does not connect.

        For the GMail account, I had found some time back that the settings needed were/are

        imap.googlemail.com and smtp.googlemail.com respectively instead of *.gmail.com.
        Now those settings won’t work either.
        What do I need to do to correct these two accounts?

        I use imap.googlemail.com and port 993 in Thunderbird. Working fine here.

        cheers, Paul

        How are you accessing the accounts? Web, Outlook, other third party email app?

        Joe, Outlook 365.  And this morning the Exchange account connected (?), But the GMail is still not online.

        Joe, I found that Google (?) Had turned off the access to less secure apps ( https://myaccount.google.com/lesssecureapps) and it now seems to connect fine.
